Kickstarter: Sinclair ZX Spectrum Bluetooth Keyboard

A novel retro idea of recreating a ZX Spectrum as a Bluetooth keyboard for tablet computers. Personally I’d have thought concentrating on it as a keyboard first, rather than as a gaming device, would’ve had more wide-ranging appeal.

It’ll be interesting to see if they meet their goal with the gaming as their first aim.

As another year passes and progress continues towards wearable tech etc. I like to keep reminding myself of how far we’ve come even in my lifetime.

As a child of the 70s, you can’t underestimate how revolutionary the synthesiser sound was to fresh ears. And look at these ‘cutting edge’ futuristic graphics. This, ladies and gentlemen, was the future! (in the 1980s)
